Here’s something from the “Did you know that?” category. Did you know that abortions are apparently eligible for a tax deduction? That appears to be true, so says the IRS.irs

From the Washington Examiner, in a list of odd tax deductions:

Have an abortion, get a tax deduction! How strange that pro-abortion advocates aren’t using this as a selling point. Hmmm.

Oh, and while they hyperventilate over Hobby Lobby not wanting to provide every type of birth control without a co-pay, it turns out that birth control pills can be deducted if prescribed by a doctor.

Also, you can deduct the purchase of pregnancy test kits and vasectomies.

So what does the IRS say about deducting the cost of killing your child?

“You can include in medical expenses the amount you pay for a legal abortion,” it says.

So if the average abortion costs $500, it’s still significantly smaller than the average tax credit for a child. Choose life.
